Steam Punk Skull
With the popularity of steam punk designs and the fact that Halloween was approaching I thought I would try to create something steam punk. This is what I ended up with. It is a sort of steam punk ghoul. This poor soul is somewhere between a cyborg a ghoul and a skull. Sort of darth vader meets steam punk. The flesh on his skull is peeled away on one side exposing the bare skull. You can see where it is folded over at the top of his head. He has really had a rough life but he is pressing on. He has a respirator and hearing device which both look to be adjustable with a sort of geared knob. He also has a monocular goggle protecting the eye on the side of his skull that is missing the flesh. All of these devices are finished in simulated brass and held on with simulated leather straps with brass buckles. Here's looking forward to Halloween everyone.
